In brief: Sometimes

Amyloid can be deposited in the marrow and can in some cases thereby compromise the ability of the marrow to form new blood cells.

In brief: Sometimes

Some cases of amyloidosis are a result of plasma cell tumors which can cause a loss of bone marrow.
These are al amyloidosis. Aa amyloidosis is usually secondary to inflammatory processes that don't affect the bone marrow.
